"forbes."e picece from when we look at the question of nationalization and what it means, what about to the archives and see what the questions were from 2008. in this article looks at what it means. and it means giving the government the power to control banks. this could mean taking control of the public shares to the power to pick and install new leadership at the bank. let's go back to the o"new york times" op ed piece that says basically of the barclays interest-rate

companies -- obamacare is a great handout to insurance companies to my perspective. you want to make us look like we're supporting the insurance companies. it was you all who went hand in hand with the insurance companies. you set it up so they couldn't lose. you made them regulate utilities. they're guaranteed a profit every year as a result of the individual mandate. it's the democrats who are helping the insurance companies and that point has not been made. you talk out of both sides of your mouths and that's a perfect example of what goes on in the book 1984. allowing them to do that, allowing them to create this regulated utility helps the insurance companies. then you say only they gain from the repeal. no mr. pallone. the american people gain from the repeal of this. we gain our freedom again. the difference between the liberals in in country and the conservatives is the issue of freedom. you and your colleagues want the government to control every aspect of our lives. we do not believe in that. we want this to continue to be the greatest country in the world and what makes us the gre
indication for two months. that means certain things, and what's interesting to us, we have been saying that europe was the key for financial stocks because -- if we had the confidence for 40 years in the u.s., i have beenble to play the fed, when the fed loosened up, we were confident that the economy would come back because people knew what the numbers were. not so sure that china comes back as quickly as the u.s. did when the central bank of china loosens up. >> so china is a bigger unknown. let's talk about this. this fiscal cliff when the bush tax cuts expire along the programs at the end of the year, and that will push companies to fire people. they will not keep the workers on. so what do you think happened? you have to believe this creates real volatility and downward pressure on stocks. >> i think what's going on right now about this cliff is not anything real. it's politically driven and ron has it right. the only thing both sides of the aisle have done is decide not to raise taxes, but the whole argument is disingenuous. this is the fax code and they play a head game with us

's ed lavandera is in aurora for us. ed, what do we know about this package? >> reporter: well, we're still trying to gather information on what exactly is inside that package, wolf. but as you mentioned that law enforcement official telling cnn that on monday police and fbi discovered a package that was apparent apparently sent by james holmes, the 24-year-old suspected gunman. now it's unclear obviously if this package was indeed sent by him, it was clearly sent before he was taken into custody. it arrived at some point on monday at the university mail room. we've also been told by hospital officials over the last couple of days this is something we've been monitoring for some time that there were two packages that were suspicious and were being looked into, one found in the mail room and also one that was actually delivered to a university professor. so we've been trying to nail down more information on this. and we'll continue to do so, wolf. >> what's the university of colorado saying about all of this, ed? >> reporter: well, now that the details have come out that this packag
